David and I watched this last weekend and it is simply amazing and must be watched by anyone who is a fan of Clark Gregg or Hayley Atwell. Clark Gregg kills it doing Brittany Spears, Toxic, which will forever be known as the song at the end of the world because of Doctor Who. Then there is Hayley Atwell doing an amazing Lady Gaga.
The answer is… sort of nothing. I mean, there’s a few movies definitely worth watching, but for the majority this month seems like a good chance to catch up on things if you’re behind. Still need to see some of those classic movies that came on Netflix last month? This is a good chance to do so, they’ll be sticking around for May as well.
Honestly, this is about the only movie that stood out to me as being worth watching this month. If you grew up in the 80’s or 90’s, this movie is an absolute classic. John Hughes perfectly captures the awkwardness of teen lives, from dealing with family to having a crush on someone who seems well out of your league.
To Catch a Thief
An Alfred Hitchcock classic. If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth checking out at least once – if anything at least to see the beautiful elegance of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly.
Beyond those two movies, there’s a lot of sequels (Kindergarten Cop 2…) and not-so-great comedies from the 90’s and 00’s like Bring it On 1 & 2 and The Nutty Professor. Several additional seasons of shows are being added, but really, use the month of May to catch up on what you’ve been meaning to watch.
What are you watching on Netflix right now?

I went with Geek Baby for just a little while and there was so much going on. Unfortunately I was not able to participate in a lot of the happenings, but I did get to walk through the “hall” and look at all the comics and artists that were participating. There were a lot of people there and a lot of people showed up in cosplay even, which was amazing. The number of artists that they got to come to Juneau was pretty amazing. Here are some of the best parts of the event. Continue reading
